Exploring the eastern approach to wellness, he practiced yoga for many years. He became a strict vegetarian and experimented with numerous diet plans including fasting and macrobiotics. He investigated the energetics of different foods based on traditional (Ayurveda, Chinese, Native American Indian) systems from around the world.
